Diversity and Inclusion

A global commitment to diversity and inclusion

Johnson Controls has long understood the value of diversity and inclusion. It is present in everything we embody – from our values to our Leader Expectations Model. Building on this history, our leadership is moving diversity and inclusion beyond a foundational value to a business imperative.

Our mission
Our mission is to become the competitive leader and industry model for diversity and inclusion to enable operational excellence, growth and engagement. Our strategic focus in this area will allow us to be:

  • Smarter, bringing more ideas, perspectives and experiences to solving problems, responding to customers and innovating.
  • More accessible to more customers, suppliers and markets.
  • More responsive through faster issue resolution, risk mitigation efficiency and accuracy.
  • More capable, through greater access to a broader base of talent that stays longer and is more productive.
  • More engaging, by inviting more individuals the opportunity to bring their whole self to work.
  • Better performers than non-diverse and non-inclusive cultures on most measures of financial performance.

Culture of Inclusion

At Johnson Controls, we believe that diversity and inclusion matter and make a difference. By embracing the true value of diversity and inclusion, getting comfortable with having crucial conversations, and valuing different perspectives, we will be one of the most desirable places to work.

Business Resource Groups

Johnson Controls supports and sponsors Business Resource Groups (BRGs) across the company. BRGs are an integral component of our overall workforce diversity strategy to create and sustain a diverse and inclusive workplace. They focus their efforts and initiatives using the 4C Model (career, culture, commerce and community) as a guide.

  • BRGs are employee driven, voluntary and open to all employees.
  • Our BRGs are global talent engines which showcase diverse perspectives to create business impact.

We have 10 different types of BRGs with more than 70 chapters, globally.

Partnerships
As Johnson Controls strives to be a business partner, employer and supplier of choice, we realize that our ability to make progress in this area will require increased collaboration where employees are engaged to drive results. We uphold valuable corporate partnerships with many global, national, and local diversity and professional organizations. We actively partner with these organizations year-round on different programs and initiatives as well as national recruiting events. These partnerships grant us access to top diverse talent, research and benchmarking information as well as networking and professional development opportunities for our employees.
